When I was just starting out in cake decorating a good friend of mine asked me to make a Very Hungry Caterpillar themed cake for her son's Christening.
Now as I'd never heard of the Very Hungry Caterpillar I did an internet search for cakes and was a bit underwhelmed at what I found. I always like to push myself and try to do something that makes people go WOW! so came up with this huge 3D apple design with a caterpillar (made from moulded rice krispy treats covered in sugarpaste) chomping his way through the apple. It was about 1 foot tall and really impressive!
Even though this is one of the first cakes I ever made, I still absolutely love it!
